Shutter valves

Insulation oil inside the transformer needs to be monitored to reduce any risk of transformer failure to a minimum. Loss of oil from the transformer does not only cause environmental pollution but can also lead in extreme cases to an explosion and fire. Shutter valves prevent the conservator from oil draining. In case of any rapid movement of the oil, the shutter valve can immediately close the pipe to stop oil dispersion. It is a perfect solution for transformers located in earthquakes and hurricane risk areas where movement causes pipe ruptures or leaks.

Choose our solution and assure reliable and safe operation of the transformer and a power supply network. You will get reliable accessories designed to shut down the transformer immediately when necessary to prevent any catastrophic failure.
